The people were flown back to Dhaka at around 10:45pm.
The flight left Dhaka around 3:30pm on Friday, Biman's general manager (public relations) Shakil Meraj earlier told Prothom Alo.
After completing formalities, the special flight flew back with four passengers, two pilots, two cabin crew and two ground engineers to Dhaka at night, he added.
A Biman flight from Dhaka skidded off the runway while landing at Yangon Airport on Wednesday evening due to inclement weather, injuring a number of people on board.
The airliner was broken and split into three parts.
Biman’s acting managing director Farhat Hasan Jamil on Thursday said the Dash-8 airliner will not be brought back home as it was severely damaged.

Biman authorities formed a six-member committee headed by chief of flight safety Captain Shoeb Chwodhury on Thursday to investigate the incident
